NEXUS brings in 33rd RIBA Award for AA

Associated Architects are delighted to have won an RIBA Yorkshire Award for Nexus, adding to its recognition from the BCO and Insider Yorkshire Property Awards.

The £42 million Nexus enables the University of Leeds to meet their strategic objective of increasing income from research and establishing themselves as UK-leading in innovation and enterprise. Conceived as a business facing front door for the university, it provides a high-profile physical focal point for stimulating collaboration between external companies and other public/private organisations leading to new projects and income streams.

Director James Hall who led the Nexus project for AA said:

“we are delighted to receive this commendation, earning a 33rd RIBA Award for the practice. Nexus sets a new tone among innovation sector buildings not just at the University of Leeds, but in the sector as a whole. Instead of being a “university” space its a professional commercial space, based around people and space, offering rentable spaces, collaboration spaces, and access to experts/equipment that creates a vibrant, inspiring and connected innovation community.”
